    A victory beyond my wildest dreams. Isn’t it interesting that the combined vote of the Lib Dem and Tory candidates amounted to over 90% of the votes cast, with the remaining 6 candidates all losing their deposits. This shows that if voters get the message of tactical voting then almost every Tory seat is vulnerable. All we need is the resources to fund the sort of campaign needed to achieve this sort of result. I hope Tilly is out picking pockets, grabbing bank transfers, gathering cheques and raiding credit cards this morning!

  • One word (at the moment)

    YES!
